What is the Coding Kit
The Coding Kit ©, is the official list of codes used by Citizenship and Immigration Canada in the processing of CAIPS/GCMS files.
The notes entered in the CAIPS/GCMS system by an Immigration officer are in English (may be in French for Quebec immigrants), easy to understand and provide very useful information. However some of the codes used within the CAIPS/GCMS file may be difficult to interpret. The Coding Kit provides assistance in the interpretation of the file in these circumstances.
